Have I ever mentioned I’m not a fan of award shows? I rarely watch them because they always disappoint.
But I made an exception this year and watched the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductions. I mean, Rush, Heart, Albert King. Gotta be good right?
Guest appearances by John Fogerty, Tom Petty, Jackson Brown, David Grohl, Gary Clark, John Mayer. People I admire. Music I love. Gonna be good for sure.
Lame speeches. So-so performances. Well-meant and no doubt all very sincere, but in the end, just a bunch of silliness.
You know, when Alex Lifeson gets the most applause for literally saying “blah blah blah” for 3 minutes (though it seemed like 7), the evening has been kinda dull.
Cool jam on Crossroads as the credits rolled, though.
